As I reflect on my time on the Little Italy Lodge Scholarship Foundation Board, I admire how far we have come. From a small scrappy team that got the job done to now being able to support students with over $30,000 a year in scholarships is quite remarkable. I am so proud to be a part of this team and am always impressed by the quality of our volunteers.
Before I continue, I would like to introduce the Operations Team:
Maria Fratangelo – Chair of the Scholarship Committee
Dr Andrew Ross – Chair of Applicant Recruitment
Gary Molino – Chair of Publicity
Armand Esposito – Our Swiss Army Knife
Adrienne Marra – Member of the Scholarship Committee
We have many new and exciting things planned for the Foundation, and we are so happy you are here with us.
One new item of note, the Foundation will sponsor the Scholarship awardees and their Lodge sponsor to a Friday Night Dinner. We are planning for the last FND in July to be the Scholarship Dinner. Be on the lookout for more information!
We have begun the planning of the 2023 Scholarship Application and the 2023 Taste of Italy event. And spoiler alert, it will be returning to the Lodge! Our currently Taste of Italy Team includes:
We have a lot to do this year and we hope you will join us. From attending events to helping recruit applicants, there is a long list of items we would like to accomplish, and we could use your help. There is also room on our Foundation Team and Taste of Italy Planning Committee. If interested, please reach out to anyone on the Foundation team or email firstname.lastname@example.org. See you at the Lodge!
